In this Forbes article, the author explains why IT Operations Departments have a reputation for poor customer service and low employee satisfaction. "When faced with a long list of tasks and the manic pressure to complete every request urgently, engineers find themselves plugging away instead of taking the time to understand what’s truly important to the business." It seems impossible for a team to focus on operations and new initiatives at the same time.

That means that today’s Information Technology Departments are overwhelmed with a daunting mix of operational issues, new projects, languishing service tickets and reduced resources. "The tyranny of the urgent", as coined by Charles Hummel, forces new initiatives to be constantly reprioritized, creating project and service request backlogs that never get completed.
